Summer Salons

Inspiring salon-style conversations and workshops 
at the Fine Arts Work Center

We are excited to announce a brand new series: Summer Salons. For these events, we’re inviting two leading lights in the arts and culture world to the Work Center to share their insights, experience, and knowledge in a weekend of conversation, learning, and community.

We’re hosting four summer salon weekends this summer, and we have assembled an incredible line-up of leading voices who have shaped arts and letters in the United States and worldwide.

How It Works

On Fridays at 5 PM, the listed events will begin with a reception in the Daniel A. Mullin Light Courtyard. Following this, a free-flowing conversation between our two distinguished guests will begin at 6 PM. Audience members will also have the opportunity to participate in a Q&A session. The Friday Night Salons will be livestreamed, for those in our community who can’t attend in person but would like to register and participate virtually.

On Saturday afternoon, guests will each lead an intimate workshop, one in-person in the Stanley Kunitz Common Room, and one virtually via Zoom.

Proceeds from these paid events ensure that the Fine Arts Work Center is able to provide free arts and culture events for the Outer Cape Cod community year round.
